There is either a cat hair in the rooms or mold in the building my allergies were triggered as soon as I moved to a different hotel the issue went away. I really love the mansion tho... very sad I can't stay any more.

Loved the beautiful historic building. We appreciated that the building's history was available to read on a handout. Bathrooms and our private room were kept clean. Staff was friendly. We liked the hammocks on the front porch. One thing was that breakfast croissants didn't seem fresh. But the real downside was something out of the hostel's control: on the weekend, the neighborhood was deserted except for a significant homeless population. Nonetheless our stay was very positive.

last time we stayed here was perfect this time was a waste of money. Even do our room was ready at 11:15 am and they made us wait until 3 pm we came at 3:00 pm and we did not get checked in until passed 4:30 because there is only one girl and "every one showed up at 3:00 to check in" the next morning the gardeners came to do the outside with their blowers and stuff around 8:30 am. I ask the staff if the gardeners could stop and start at 11:00 and they said "no,we can not" 8:30 am. Dirty shower

Thank you kindly for taking the time to leave us a review with feedback regarding your stay. In order to keep our check-in process uniform and consistent, we don't allow for early check-ins, as that could come across as discrimination for guests who are unable to check-in early and favoritism for those who are. Additionally, we have one person working each shift and that person is responsible for cleaning all of the used beds from the night before, so processing an early check-in would delay our ability to reset the house, leading to delaying the check-in time in the afternoon. August is the busiest time of year for vacation travelers, which is likely why your check-in didn't occur until the time you've stated, as others were in line waiting to check-in, as well. Our sincerest apologizes if not being able to check in until after 3PM placed any sort of damper on your stay.
